The Grand Opening of East End Market is upon us! This is going to be a first in Central Florida. A place to eat and buy local in a beautiful building that keeps the environment in the forefront. We can't wait for it to open! The opening is open to all, but there is a special opening event from 6-9pm that costs $40 ( http://eastendmkt.com/east-end-updates/october-25th-grand-opening-celebration/ )

East End Market is a neighborhood market and cultural food hub inspired by Central Florida’s local farmers and food artisans. Through collaboration and creativity, we strive to cultivate an appreciation for our true sustenance, a better understanding of our food system, and a dynamic local economy.

East End Market is a neighborhood market and food hub in the Audubon Park Garden District of Orlando, Florida. The Market showcases some of Central Florida’s top food entrepreneurs, tradespeople, artists, and chefs. The two-story structure is home to a dozen merchants, a large event space, a demonstration kitchen, an incubator kitchen, offices, retail shops, a full-time, award-winning caterer and a world-class restaurant.

The first floor hosts ten independently-owned businesses offering local seafood, meats, daily baked bread, freshly roasted coffee, Italian prepared meals and sweets, Kombucha, organic juice, raw food specialties, artisan cheeses, savory soups and sauces, local produce and flowers. Contiguous to the market hall is a farm-fresh restaurant, Txokos Basque Kitchen, a new culinary concept from the owners of Spanish River Grill (http://www.thespanishrivergrill.com/). The property will be landscaped with Florida-friendly varietals, as well as home to a working market garden. East End Market will not only be a hub for local food and culture, but also a community space fostering creativity and collaboration.
